On 4 November 2020, the European Union Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine (EUBAM) and representatives of law enforcement agencies from the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine, supported by Europol, Frontex, OSCE and HALO Trust held, in a video-conference format, the second operational meeting of the Arms Working Group.

The multilateral forum presented an excellent opportunity for parties to share their experience and information on significant cases of weapons, ammunition and explosives trafficking, as well as present the most recent trends, modi operandi and the best investigation practices.

Additionally, the participating agencies took stock of implementation of the 2020 Action Plan and tackled the challenges faced during the coronavirus pandemic.
